High School Voter Education Weeks

California Education Code designates the last two full weeks of April and September to be High School Voter Education Weeks and authorizes schools to designate students as “voter outreach coordinators.” This provides an opportunity for students to become active and engaged participants in our democracy and to put these students on the path to a lifetime of civic engagement and voting.

The Secretary of State provides resources to make it easy for schools to participate. Teachers can help eligible students pre-register or register to vote either on a paper form or online. Voter outreach coordinators can lead registration drives and other school activities aimed at civic participation.

Use the High School Voter Education Weeks Voter Registration Drive Starter Kit to assist your school in hosting your own voter registration drive.

Use the High School Voter Education Weeks Toolkit to bring awareness to student voter registration and civic engagement.
